The Evergreen Plainsmen love putting on the biggest high school wrestling tournament in Clark County.
It is so big, in fact, that the Plainsmen host it at a neighboring school
The Pacific Coast Wrestling Championships will be Friday and Saturday at Mountain View High School. Wrestling begins at 11 a.m. Friday and at 10 a.m. Saturday. It can be tough to pinpoint an exact time for the end of the tournament, but organizers said they hope that finals will begin around 5 or 6 p.m. Saturday.
“I took over the program from Mark Castle, and he left me a very good tournament,” Evergreen coach Gabe Nunez said. “It’s one of our biggest fundraisers. We love watching some of the best competition in Oregon and Washington in battle for our medals and a chance to take home some hardware.”
In all, roughly 50 teams will be in Vancouver for the event.
This year, finalists will be introduced with fanfare, with a few seconds of introduction, and then they will head to the mat through smoke and lights. The championship matches will be held under one spotlight.
The largest tournament in the county is also one of the largest tournaments in the Northwest, in terms of number of teams.
